"Ann Veronica" is a novel by H.G. Wells first published in 1909. The book deals with contemporary political issues of the time, concentrating specifically on feminist issues. In the course of the action the heroine matures from an innocent and naïve girl to a representative of the New Woman.

"Ann Veronica" created a sensation when published, due both to the feminist sensibilities of the heroine, and to the similarity of her name to that of Amber Reeves, a woman with whom Wells was rumored to be having an affair.
